Striped Pangasius, Calcium Pills, and Taurine

Good morning readers.  Thanks for coming by for a read this morning.

Just playing catchup here.  Posting a few items I’ve intended to mention for a while, but kept forgetting.

First, a while back I mentioned a kind of farm-fed Vietnamese frozen fish filets I got on one of those drama sales at HEB.  Told you it was great fish, cheap, none of that on-the-brink fishy taste a person is liable to get buying fish.

Bought several packages since and what I said remains true.  Striped Pangasius.

Secondly, if you’re troubled with awakening nights because of hand-grenades going off in your joints you might give this a try.  I usually have to be troubled with it a dozen or so times before I remember to do it, but it might be months before it starts again.  Usually when this Texas humidity goes ballistic.

I discovered sometime a long while back that when I eventually remember to do it, two grams of calcium pills per day for a week or two will cause it to stop.  Mightn’t work for you, but it does for me.  I just wish I could remember it sooner when the joints catch fire nights.

Thirdly, that taurine I told you about a while back I was taking to try to get off blood pressure medications didn’t succeed getting free of it.  But the stuff’s so good in other ways I’m going to keep taking it when I can afford it.

Not much else going on here besides the sky full of humidity and hazy sunlight.  I’m wondering whether there’s enough hot weather left to take the sheep shears to the long haired cats again.  Wondering whether they’ll have time to grow a good coat back before the weather cools enough to make them wish they’d kept the fur.

  1. My wife and I much prefer natural cures but there are always times when a MD is needed.

  2. I’ll try the added calcium. I’ve noticed more aching with increased humidity and thought it was my imagination, thanks for the remedy suggestion.

  3. I suggest keep up the fish, always good to have fish oil, and find a way to get some warm heat on your body. Maybe you could find a way to get in some really hot water, and sip some marguerita’s! Have a peaceful evening.

  4. Just wondering what are the benefits of taurine? Also, what is it. It is not in my limited knowledge of natural treatments. I find calcium is very helpful for relieving back pain and joint pain. My husband found hot water Epsom Salt soaks good for relieving pain in his heal where calcium deposits were causing trouble in the tendon in the back of the heel. There are a number of herbs that grow wild here in the high desert that I use for specific problems as well as over the counter herbs.

    • Hi Mary: I haven’t nailed down the benefits of taurine. Began taking it because it was offered as an antidote for MSG reactions. Hoped regularly taking it would bring down my blood pressure and get me off bp meds. Might yet, I suppose. But I found I just generally felt better taking it, so I keep on. Gracias, J

  5. Thank you. Your comments resulted in me looking it up and finding and Interesting bit of information on Wikipedia. Included the info on blood pressure. Most interesting to me was the possible affect on the liver and eyes. Repair of the liver where one has had lots of medications, alcohol or anything else that would damage the liver is a good thing. Also, if it helps peoples retinas as it does a cat’s then that is another great benefit. Several other things in the info gave a good indication as to why one could experience feeling better in general. Certainly worth considering using.
